After 180,000 miles it was time for my first clutch replacement. I had bought the parts over a year ago & never opened any of the boxes until Christmas day. I had planned on having the clutch done while I had a few days off for the holidays. The housing cover had severe chatter marks in several places in the clutch disc area. My local dealer did get me a replacement but because of the holidays I didn't get it until Tuesday.
I'm not complaining one bit I just want to show others what to look for. I have been a mechanic & machinist since 1970 & should have inspected the parts when I bought them. 180,000 Miles 003.jpg
